I am doing a cake in a few weeks that has what looks like stripe texture running down the sides of a buttercream cake. I was wondering if anyone had any tricks or tips on how they do this. I was just planning on using my offset spatula to wipe on some of the buttercream to get the effect.
I tried attaching a picture to this post, but it doesn't seem to want to post. I also tried to search for this (both on here and using google), as I am sure it has already been discussed, but I wasn't exactly sure what the technique was called.
Do you have a link to the picture that you can post?
Unfortunately no. The bride just sent me a picture attached to an email. I even tried to find something similar in the galleries here and couldn't.
This is the best I can find, but it the pic she sent, the grooves were deeper.
I wasn't exactly sure what the technique was called.
Some call it iced "homestyle".
Thank you CWR41. I found another thread that explained others various techniques and now I know the name of the technique!
I like that!! And I agree it looks like a simple spatula swipe. I'm going to try that on the next cake I do for family.
